Election 2016 part 2

I keep hearing dire predictions about what will happen if Clinton wins.  I keep hearing dire predictions about what will happen if Trump wins.  I hear how much someone hates one or the other of the candidates.  But in one sense, who occupies the White House doesn’t matter.  God will have His way with this country.

This doesn’t mean God won’t punish people who lie, destroy others, steal, and support moral wrong.  He will punish those who violate the natural moral law which has been around forever.  But despite all the evil and dysfunction, He will accomplish His purposes in the world.  Good people may suffer in the backwash of some of the evil things other people do.  People still get in the wrong place at the wrong time, and good people will be jailed and perhaps killed for being on the wrong side of the political winners.  At the same time, God is using all of it–all of it, to accomplish eventual, eternal good for those who love Him.  Rather than worry about who is in the White House, we ought to worry about whether we are part of God’s house.
